Intel moves towards FSB 1333

Preparations for E6x50


Intel is about to start a transition to a new business desktop platform. It is going to make more money with this platform than it would make by selling components and it makes perfect business sense to do it.


In order to get an Intel Vpro sticker and be up to date, you will have to get a machine with the Q35 chipset with ICH 9DO and from Q3 onwards, with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6x50 that supports FSB 1333.


This new chipset and platform are ready for Yorkdale quad core and Wolfdale dual core 45 nanometre processors. Intel calls this platform the Weybridge professional platform. Intel also warned its customers that according to its initial plans, its Dual Core processors should work with FSB 1333 while the Quad core Wolfdale 45 nanometre core with up to 12 MB cache is doomed to FSB 1066.

We are sure that Intel will make some space for Quad core FSB 1333 Yorkfields, but only when the time comes.  

If you want to meet the Waybridge fundamental platform, you need to use the Q33 chipset and any Core 2 Duo or dual core processor and Intel 82556DM Gigabit LAN.
